    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview Details

    There was about a 20 minute phone interview screen and once i got passed that, they flew me to the location where there was about an hour interview with the manager and program manager. The questions were the basic intro questions (why do you want to work here, what do you like about this position, etc) behavioral ( How have you been innovative, describe a misunderstanding, etc) and then there was the technical section. I would say just know the V model really well.

    Interview Questions
    • Fortunately for me, neither of the interviewers knew that much about systems engineering so as long as it came out polished i was ok. The hardest question for me is always, "whats your weakness"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They tried to low ball me big time for what i thought i was worth but we negotiated. Even though i still didnt get what i wanted, it was about 10K more than they initially offered.

    FLDP Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    It was a pretty straightforward interview. Mostly behavioral questions, so if you search around the Internet, it should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. I would definitely recommend doing research about the company beforehand, as well as assessing your hard and soft skills and experiences on your resume so you'll be well-prepared to answer the majority of their questions. If there are any information sessions or networking events, attend them if you can. More often than not, the person who is interviewing you might be at those sessions. Don't be afraid to ask questions about the program and introduce yourself. They'll remember your face and they'll also know that you're genuinely interested in working for the company if you're willing to go out of your way to speak to them.

    All Source Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    A friend referred me. I was emailed by a recruiter who asked for my resume which I responded and gave her a copy to view. She informed me I would be a great fit based on my experience and wanted to have me call her since she was unavailable to contact me since I was deployed overseas. I called her and she explained to me the details of the position where I told her I was interested. She informed me I would have to speak with someone else who had had the final say where he asked me several questions...all of which were simple to answer.

    Interview Questions
    • None. He wrapped up the conversation with, "I have so many applicants, why should I choose you over others." I gave a detailed response as I know the true meaning behind that specific question and answered it accordingly. A few days, later, I was provided an offer, and the rest is history.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I already knew where the numbers were going to be and how they absolutely did not have any intentions on budging. I took it anyway thinking that the overtime hours would make up way more than the difference....until overtime hours were cut along with other privileges and incentives (vacation) that were diminished slowly but surely. After I departed, I was informed people's salary's were reduced even while they were deployed overseas; they were given the option to take the new reduced salary or return home to the sates and look for employment elsewhere or elsewhere within the company (state-side) employment was not any better.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview Details

    The process started with a phone interview. I spoke with the hiring manager and we went over what my experience was briefly over the phone. After the call I got an email from HR saying that they wanted to bring me in for an in person interview. When I arrived at the location, the people were all very nice. I met with the hiring manager and we went into more depth about internship and school projects. The experience was very relaxed, just simple questions to see what I had experience with.He then introduced me to some of his senior engineers that took me on tours of their work areas. They were all very nice and down to earth people. After meeting with them, the hiring manager told me he would get back to me within a week or so letting me know if I was chosen or not. I heard back in 2 days with a fantastic offer.

    Test Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milpitas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at BAE Systems USA in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Test development with LabView and Python were listed as the most important parts of this position. A phone interview with the newly hired manager took place. He was not familiar with LabView or Python so just asked general questions about test programming. He asked a few questions about CMOS logic that sounded like they were lifted from a college tesxtbook. I went for an on site interview with just the manager. He asked more questions about board layout, how to determine what bypass caps to use, filtering, controlled impedance lines, and other textbook type questions. I answered them accurately, drawing on my EE training but the manager wanted to hear his more specific answers, that sounded like they were lifted from a textbook.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at BAE Systems USA in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I only landed one interview, and it was a fairly easy interview, but I think I stumbled a little bit and did not get a call back. It was more personal than I thought and more behavioral questions were asked. In fact, no question pertaining to my engineering knowledge was asked. I interviewed through my university, so location was not an issue. It lasted about 30 minutes, but I suspect that was longer than my interviewer anticipated.
